Hi Fairy glad boiler is getting sorted I've complained about our weather but it's better than yours and poor Bill's. 

Cricky Verdun that doesn't sound good but at least it was only their televisions not their plants or houses Keep your hands in your pockets until the weather has passed. 

Off to cook now so all stay warm when you finally get home and enjoy your evening.  

Today's lunch!

Wintersong  I'm poor at planning, I know what beds I require but what part of lawn to dig up is another matter and OH does get a say in it   he does the heavy digging  Extra veg plot is first job, so part of current one can be used for plants..nothing to do with fact it is now good soil ..shush don't let OH hear.

I loved the grasses I have a couple that were featured, mine don't look their best as they are singular plants as I don't have room for group planting such a shame. 

Also enjoyed Great British back gardens

Lyn lovely picture of your pond even if your garden is covered in snow.

It's been sunny all day but the wind has been bitterly cold we still have snow/ ice in some places, far too cold to spend any length of time outside

Liri I do dirt well never been to a GC looking half decent  Hope you feel tip top tomorrow. 

Verdun I hope all remains ok in your neck of the woods.

Bill enjoy your fish & chips and stay warm.

No plant buying for me until I have made some new beds to plant them in

Frank a lovely story 

When I was a bit younger than your Gdtr I used to come home from school singing songs and my parents used to wonder what I was on about, they knowing the correct words.

London Bridge is burning down ...KEF used to build it up with vire & vice  to this day I don't know where that came from but I sang with gusto. 

My old Man...KEF had an old cockle innit 

I used to sing theme tunes from the television and my fav was from Double your Money.....KEF's version double your money with Charlie Endrich think it might have been Double your Money and get Rich 

Not a song but KEF also thought people had vigorous veins 

KEF now going to lie down in a dark room 


Herb Planters

Hi Paul, I'm also one who grows herbs in terracotta pots.

I did have a herb wheel it took up a fair bit of space on the patio but did not have much depth for planting. In winter had to be separated so that herbs that needed to go into the GH could and the rest stayed outside in pie shaped pieces and looked odd. Also because it was terracotta coloured plastic each section aged differently and when put back together it looked unsightly.
